Investigation of pH-dependent collagen triple-helix formation.

Abstract

Collagen is a ubiquitous biomaterial that forms the supporting structures in skin, bone, tendons, cartilage, and blood vessels. Numerous types of collagen have been identified, and the tertiary structure of each shares the common structural motif of the collagen triple helix (CTH). The CTH motif is composed of three chains, each of which adopts a left… (More)
